Wise and insightful words, I see this everywhere and it really depresses me.
I see it in society, I see it in church people. I even see it in my professional support.
Perp protecting, abuse minimizing, apathy enabling = abuse increasing.
Alice Miller calls this “pandemic” – the protection of the perp”…. just that.
Alice Miller believes that society has been taught to empathise with the criminal for several reasons, one of the main ones…and rather obvious perhaps is “fear and denial”
This also goes with the whole ‘apath’ pandemic which I also very clearly see occurring.
I should read up more on Alice Miller’s work. I like reading insightful, intelligent, ‘like minded’ people’s work.
